The Berkeley Unified School District’s Facilities Department has undertaken a year-long process to plan and begin the implementation of a Sustainability and Resiliency Master Plan, to:
- reduce the environmental footprint of schools,
- save money, and
- promote environmental literacy for our students.
Thanks to a grant from the Altamont Advisory Board and Stopwaste, we’re able to get a head start with reducing waste this school year.
There are many ways for the BUSD community to get involved in this process, and to ensure that all voices are heard.
We can all work together to be environmentally responsible adults and help students learn these practices, too. We invite you to:
- Reduce the amount of waste thrown into the landfill. Here are some tips for a Zero Waste Lunch.
- Teach students proper sorting at home! Remind them what can be composted and recycled.
We hope that you support BUSD’s renewed commitment to healthy, green school buildings and grounds and hands-on environmental and outdoor education.
If you have any questions or concerns, or are interested in learning more about this Plan and process, please contact Susan Silber at this email address: email@example.com
